    Screen's Acting Up

    Hey guys, my Pandora is acting up again. This time the screen likes to flicker and fade at certain lid positions. For example, if I lift it to almost 90 degrees from the table top, it will sometimes start to fade to reverse coloring with intense ghosting. Is this going to get worse or is it a...

    Clock Change!

    Hey, I just realized why I've been having a terrible time getting wifi to work. It was the clock. (I think.) Anyways, it's good for you guys to know, because it messed up a number of random systems in Gentoo. Gentoo was told to read and write the clock in Local time to match older revisions of...

    Stuck at wl1251_sdio mmc2:0001:1: firmware: requesting wl1251-fw.bin

    Wireless stopped working. I'm not sure what happened, but here's what I know: a friend of mine saw my Pandora and, being an engineer himself, was interested and asked if he could hold it. He played with the nubs and the keyboard, and then clicked the shoulder buttons rapidly. Now, at the time I...

    Customizing A Distro For Pandora

    I'm having a few issues right now: Xorg.conf is nearly blank in the official firmware, with a comment that everything is autodetected via HAL. This makes sense, and certainly makes Xorg easy. Except vanilla HAL (at least the one Gentoo comes with) is not prepared to detect the analog nubs as...

    Beta Calibre (V0.6.55)

    Sort of accidentally, I'm working on porting Calibre to the Pandora. I'm using Gentoo on a BeagleBoard to generate the binaries, which I then package and ship in a PND. (Someone asked on IRC if Calibre would work on ARM processors, so I compiled and ran it, and said it would, and then realized...

    Man Page Usage Debate

    We're having a bit of a debate on #openpandora about how many users use the terminal, and whether man pages are a good idea to include by default or not. So, vote away, and feel free to reply if your vote isn't descriptive enough!

    Pandora Won't Turn On

    I'm really worried right now. I did a search of the forums and can't find an answer. So, my Pandora won't turn on. I left it, lid closed, running on a blank XFCE desktop. I opened it up, and the screen was on but black. The only LED on is the power LED. I removed the battery, since...

    Mods: Create A "questions About Manufacturing" Subforum

    Whenever I come to the forums, I get nothing but frustration. All I read here nowadays is questions asking for details no other company would ever even consider providing. I just finished reading a thread, and some of the posts just about drove me up a wall. I'm sure I'm not the only one...

    Suggested Nand File-System: Ubifs

    Something for Pandora developers to consider: http://www.plugcompu.../Enabling_UBIFS Quoting the page: Why UBIFS instead of JFFS2? Because it's fast! Also, in theory, the UBI layer should be even smarter than JFFS2 about wear-levelling. But mainly because it's really fast. For reference: #...

    Pandora As A Phone

    So, lately I've been griping a lot about how expensive cell-phones are. Really quite a pain. The Pandora, and all its fanciness, made me consider my various options. This is a summary of the last two or three months of research. The only phones that'll work on the Pandora are the VoIP phones...

Google recently announced their new Google Chrome OS, and they said it "is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code...

    Beta Gentoo For Pandora - 0.0.3

    We've come a long way from where we started. Six months ago, neither viridior or I had any idea of what we were getting ourselves into. Nevertheless, we survived, and in the meantime we've created our first truly usable Gentoo release. If someone could boot it up and play with it and make sure...

    Beginning A Zelda-style Rpg Game

    I'm not really sure if this is the right community to be asking these sorts of questions. Everyone seems so knowledgeable and helpful in the Development forum, that it seems like it's the place to be if you want your questions answered. ;) If there's a different place I should visit instead...

    Forum Suggestion: +Quote, Quick Reply, and Post Merging

    There are three features that I used extensively, and would make my life so much easier around here: +Quote: If I see two arguments in two separate posts, it would be nice if I didn't have to open two new reply windows just so I can copy and paste the BBCode of one into the reply I'm writing...
